Cybils Challenge books; I consider them all preloaded on my library hold list and as I read one from each category I order up the next. I am requiring myself to read any I have in my possession first, but it looks like that only applies to one book. And I'm sorta cheating on the Scholastic catalogs from school; I'm not ordering any for myself but if the kids pick the ones I've circled and labeled LOOKS LIKE A GREAT BOOK, well, that's just supporting their reading, right? I probably won't get to read them until after April anyway.
(I'm only listing books that I own, not library books, since the latter disappear from the pile whether I read them or not.)
- Darth Paper Strikes Back, Tom Angleberger
- The Red House, Edith Nesbit (NOOK)
- The Terrorists of Irustan, by Louise Marley
- Twenty Palaces, Harry Connolly (NOOK)
- The Secret Duke, Jo Beverley
- A Lady Awakened, Celia Grant
- Because of Winn-Dixie, Kate DiCamillo (reread)
- Alvin Ho, Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things, Lenore Look
- The Maze Runner, James Dashner (technically belongs to my kid)
- Christmas Angel, Jo Beverley
- Traveling Mercies, Anne Lamott
- (The Girl Who Could Fly, Victoria Forester). Well, I read the library copy but the cover looked familiar, so I checked my TBR shelves and there it was!
- Amulet of Samarkard, Jonathan Stroud (the graphic novel)
- The End of Racism, Dinesh D'Souza. I think I've had this book for a decade.
BAM! The library had the newest Elizabeth Moon ready for my NOOK, no waiting, no will power, and I fall short by one week of the challenge. Oh well, I mostly tamed my library TBR stack.
- The Android's Dream, John Scalzi
- The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, Jacqueline Kelly
